Connor Phillips Testimonial

I have worked closely with Kate Cocker over the last two years and she has been an immense help to my career. From air checks, presenter coaching, encouragement and contacts Kate has been a superb help to me. Kate helps manage my professional and corporate jobs, my online profile and makes sure I stay on top all those things that are easy to forget as a presenter. She brings passion, energy, creativity and an industry know-how that is invaluable to radio professionals. She is easily contactable, always there with words of wisdom and brings out the best in me as a presenter.

Yvonne Harrison Testimonial

Working with Kate has fundamentally changed the way I approach public speaking. Considering my approach from the listener point of view, drawing out stories to connect more effectively with my audience and investing in preparation have all been key elements to improving the experience for both myself and those listening. My confidence has improved and feedback on the impact of my content and delivery has been really positive, I will be continuing to work with Kate and implement the tools she has given me thus far.

Hattie Pearson Testimonial

Kate has been instrumental in helping me progress as a presenter – from giving feedback on my first demo she heard from my student radio days and more recently as a mentor who always offers sound advice. Her knowledge of the industry, her passion for creating content and her ability to provide support to those rising through the ranks is endless. I would 110% recommend anyone who wants a career in radio whether that’s as a presenter (or a producer) to spend some time with Kate – you’ll be left feeling inspired and energised.

Darren Proctor Testimonial

For me, keeping a long career in radio is all about being relevant to your listener. There is a true art to delivering a story and making the other party, (who can’t see you!) feel like they are included, can relate to what you’re talking about and indeed react to it.

Kate played an integral part in me developing these skills on air. We used technique’s that helped turn a fairly standard story into a piece that engaged and included the listener. Kate has given me pointers that I use every single day in prep and that I will continue to use for as long as my broadcasting career lasts.

This is what turns a radio DJ into a brilliant broadcaster.

Kate’s knowledge and network has been key to my progression in the industry. Her mentorship and coaching has allowed me to learn, understand and practice important and valuable skills from networking to delivering content on air. The enthusiasm she possesses for developing new talent within the radio industry is evident from the time and effort she has put into my journey and career so far.
